The popular rock band will be honored this month at the Latin Music Awards

The Mexican rock band Maná will be honored at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards with the Billboard Icon Award to recognize the band’s achievements over the past 35 years.

The chart-topping and Grammy-winning band will be recognized for “having carved out a career that has not only remained relevant through time but has also made them the most distinguished band in their genre, celebrated globally for achieving both musical and commercial success.”

Maná has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, winning 24 Latin Music awards and has placed over 30 songs on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs list, including Spanish rock anthems such as Labios Compartidos and Lluvia al Corazón.

The band is also known for its environmental work through the Selva Negra Ecological Foundation, founded 25 years ago.

Maná has also been nominated this year for Latin pop artist of the year, duo or group.

Puerto Rico rapper Bad Bunny leads the list of nominees with 22 in 13 categories, followed by Colombian artist Maluma.

The awards will be presented September 23.
